The Beloved Wild
Melissa Ostrom
Expected Publication: March 27, 2018
Genre: YA Historical Fiction
Pride and Prejudice meets Cold Mountain in this debut YA American epic/adventure.

Harriet Winter is the eldest daughter in a farming family in New Hampshire, 1807. Her neighbor is Daniel Long, who runs his family's farm on his own after the death of his parents. Harriet's mother sees Daniel as a good match, but Harriet isn't so sure she wants someone else to choose her path—in love and in life.

When her brother decides to strike out for the Genesee Valley in Western New York, Harriet decides to go with him—disguised as a boy. Their journey includes sickness, uninvited guests, and difficult emotional terrain as Harriet comes of age, realizes what she wants, and accepts who she's loved all along.
It's been awhile since I've done a Waiting on Wednesday post.

Anything with Pride and Prejudice in it will get my attention, if only to relive and see something of a beloved classic.

But maybe this one will not be on the nose. It actually reminds me of Walk on Earth a Stranger.
